Let's Unpack Those Justin And Hailey Divorce Rumors, Shall We?

Although Justin and Hailey Bieber have generally seemed to be very in love and a solid match for each other, I fear a lot of folks have not been rooting for this couple since the get-go. In fact, it always seems like people are awaiting thier split. One reason for this may be that Justin was/still is the heartthrob of a generation (Zillennials), so a lot of stans feel like he belongs to them. The other reason, of course, is Selena Gomez. If kids today think the Joshua-Olivia-Sabrina situation was crazy, they shoulda seen The No. 1 Disney Channel/Pop Star Love Triangle. Lives were changed. History was made. Songs were written.

It’s well-documented that Selena and Justin *finally* called it quits in May 2018 after nearly a decade of extremely intense on and off dating. Then, Justin and Hailey got engaged a few months later and tied the knot in September of that year. They’ve been married for almost six years now but still get all kinds of hate, speculation, and Selena-related comments. Most recently, there’s been a divorce rumor going around. So, what exactly is Justin and Hailey’s relationship status right now? We’re doing a serious unpacking.

There Have Been Justin And Hailey Divorce Rumors Swirling Around

The newest round of split rumors started in February with a bizarre Stephen Baldwin Instagram Story. Hailey’s father shared a video of Justin singing a hymn and pleaded with “Christians” to “think of Justin & Hailey, take a moment to offer a little prayer for them to have wisdom, protection, and to draw close to the Lord.” Yeah, well that’s definitely a choice and just about the best way to start an ugly rumor. The online community immediately wondered what that was all about and came up with their own theories — relationship problems, divorce, a pregnancy, etc.

Hailey Responded To Rumors About Her And Justin In A March Instagram Story

In March, Hailey had evidently had enough of the internet reacting to her father’s post. She took to Instagram to shut down people’s ~creative~ theories. “Just FYI the stories and constant ‘blind items’ I see on TikTok are 100% of the time wrong Made out of thin air… Come from the land of delusion…” she wrote. “So I know it may be fun feeding into these stories but just know they’re always false xx sorry to spoil it.” Okay, but the “land of delusion” can also be a wonderful place sometimes. On April 3, she posted an IG Story photo of Justin cuddling with their dog, which could be another response to the rumors.

Maybe if people don’t believe Hailey, they’ll believe a supposed insider who’s talking to People, lol. According to the source, Hailey and Justin are “doing really well.” They added, “There’s no divorce and no truth to that whatsoever. They are very, very happy.” Well, there ya have it. Case closed. I mean, Justin did write “Yummy” about this woman, so I would hope all is well.
